Today, we went to El Sol and picked up the photos. The kids really enjoyed having their photos hung up for showcase at their school. We also picked up the last camera and are ready to return it to Mrs. Reposa. We planned on showing the kids' photos at the Art Show on April 9th, but some miscommunication lead to us picking up the photos today and not showing it at the Art Show. We might try and make a separate gala for our project a little later on in the year.
This was the last day of service learning this year and it will be up to Chloe to choose whether or not she wants to take over the project next year.
The biggest challenge this year was getting the kids to really focus on taking good photos using the techniques we taught them. They would usually just take the cameras once we got there and not really listen to the assignments we had for them. This years biggest success was that we were able to start a project at a new school and have it run even smoother than the project last year.
In regards to next year, I hope that Chloe does take over the project and has someone help her out. She would be a great asset to the project and I think she will be able to continue it further and make it even better next year. I think she should look at the rubrics we made this year and last year and also to find a system that works for her. I wish her the best of luck.
